I used the flower from Simply Sketched and stamped it three times on Coaster Board. If you haven't tried coaster board, give it a shot! What a great product and worked so well for this technique. Because the board is so thick, it gave the flower dimension without needed to use any special adhesive. It's also subtle enough that it gives great depth without making the card too bulky.
I coloured the flower with Cherry Cobbler and Primrose Petals.
I wanted to keep the card background very simply. I started with a Soft Sky cardbase and sponged Marina Mist pulling in from the edge of the cards. It gave it a very soft, natural effect. For the fraemlit, after I ran the Coaster board through the Big Shot, I left the framelit die in place and sponged lightly around it - this gave a little hint of white around the edges where the framelit protected the cardstock from the sponging.
For the frame around the window framelit, I wanted something a little thinner than the next size framelit would have produced, so I cut a square out of Cherry Cobbler that was only 1/4" bigger than the window framelit. Then I punched out two 1-3/4" circles and cut them in half. They fit perfectly behind the window framelit, mimicking the shape and allowing for a thinner border.
Check out the challenge this week:
- Create a project with "Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Soft Sky & Marina Mist"
- Create a project using "3D Paper Piecing"
- Or Mash it Up and create a "3D Paper Piecing Project with the above Colors"
I can't wait to see what you create! Please come join us this week :)
